Solar install in Culver City
After researching several companies I decided to go with Solar Forward for my 4KW PV system. I chose them for two main reasons: they use the best materials and components and they were very knowledgable and professional. <br /><br />First off they install panels made by SunPower. The panels themselves are bit more expensive than other brands but they are American made and more efficient. The SunPower system delivers with 12 panels what a competing company with Chinese made panels needed up to 18 panels to deliver the same amount of power. That means you buy fewer panels and use your limited roof real estate more efficiently. Because you're buying fewer panels the total system cost is a little more but you get a much better product. I also felt that buying American made products help bring back manufacturing jobs here.<br /><br />Next was Solar Forward's tremendous attention to detail. Their installation looked great and they didn't cut corners. Everything was done properly with attention paid to how well it looked and how well it worked. Andrew and Kyle guided me through the process and did everything from getting the permits to getting the inspection done after the installation. I signed the contract on to begin on Oct 2 and today is Dec 13; the city inspector just signed off on the inspection today and I'm so pleased I had to write this review.<br /><br />I can't say enough about my positive experience with installing SunPower panels from Solar Forward. In a few years I plan to use the remaining space on my roof for 6 more panels to power a future electric vehicle. I already know i will be using Solar Forward; they have more than earned my business.

Warm and Efficient
Going with Solar Forward for our new panels was a great decision. They've been present and professional at every step. Andrew took time to explain everything to us. We were impressed that they got up on the roof immediately to assess the potential level of sun...no other company did that. Their presentation was thorough and competitive. Their panels were of the highest quality and fit all our criteria. After we selected them, they maintained a high-level of efficiency, installing our system in just a couple days (although we had to wait a few weeks for the electric company to do the final inspection). We haven't regretted our decision to work with Solar Forward and highly recommended them to other businesses and churches. Solar Forward has continued to provide excellent service after the installation, and helped us promote sustainable options in our community.

Andrew was great - not pushy and very knowledgeable. They are a top installer for Sun Power panels which were the panels we wanted for our project. Very helpful and honest.

Overall experience was excellent - once the city permits were worked the install took 1 day! And this was on a fragile metal roof. <br /><br />They did not oversell me on more than I needed and it was a great experience.

Solar install in Santa Monica
We were so pleased with every aspect of the solar installation by Solar Forward. Mark was on time for every meeting; Oana, in the office was very helpful with all aspects of the inspection/permit process. We really had to do very little, other than give them the approval to handle the entire process. The roof was not impaired, and I had heard that this was often a big concern. They explained how the system works, showed us the (low profile) inverter, and the work went very fast and efficiently. Every time I had a question, it was answered immediately. We were so impressed with how professional everyone at Solar Forward was, and I would highly recommend them to everyone.

Everything went as planned
Everything was straight forward and went as planned. I was down to two different installers and ultimately went with Solar Forward even through they were slightly more expensive. System is up, and running great.
